Mollie and John Byrnes were honored last week on a Gloucester Harbor cruise fundraising event featuring live entertainment and a silent auction.
The Gloucester residents invited others in the community to join them in supporting a new Cardiology Suite at Addison Gilbert Hospital with a $150,000 challenge grant to the Addison Gilbert Society.
“We are so pleased to support the new Cardiology Suite, and delighted that Dr. Michael Arsenian is heading this important service at Addison Gilbert Hospital,” said John Byrnes.
In April, the brand new Cardiology Suite at Addison Gilbert Hospital opened. Featuring two physician offices, two patient exam rooms, a registration area, and a spacious and comfortable waiting area for patients and family members, the suite is conveniently located adjacent to the hospital’s main entrance and close to frequently needed diagnostic and treatment areas. The new practice is led by Michael Arsenian, MD, a well-known and well-respected cardiologist.
“Here on Cape Ann, we are confronted with a high-risk population for cardiac needs. These patients deserve high-quality care as close to home as possible. Our new suite addresses that concern by providing patients with the best cardiology services under one roof, without delay,” said Dr. Arsenian.
More than $75,000 has been raised to date to meet the challenge and support the Cardiology Suite. Community support has been instrumental in this initiative that streamlines cardiac care for Cape Ann residents.
